In partnership with the District Council of Yankalilla we will be creating habitat to provide a critical food and nesting stepping stone at Wirrina Cove on the Fleurieu Peninsula for the endangered Black Glossy Cockatoo. Much of this habitat was lost due to clearing of Woodland on the Fleurieu Peninsula in the 1900's, which has restricted the Glossy Black Cockatoo to Kangaroo Island.
This community focused project will enhance fragmented habitat by planting 25,000 trees such as Drooping Sheoak Low Woodland and associated canopy and understorey species such as SA Blue Gum and Pink Gum. This project will expand viable foraging and nesting sites 17kms north from the small pockets of vegetation that currently exist; which will allow the Glossy Black Cockatoo to cross back to the mainland and establish populations on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
APRIL the 24th and MAY the 22nd will involve collecting tree guards from this location that were used last year, to be used for future planting over the upcoming months.
